Official press release by VivaCell-MTS

The 12th International Microelectronics Olympiad is held under the high patronage of the Prime Minister of Armenia.

The competition was conducted in two stages. The first stage, held in the participants’ countries, involved a test to assess the baseline proficiency of the contestants. The second stage involved a challenging contest consisting of advanced engineering tasks requiring complex solutions.

The final stage of the 12th Microelectronics Olympiad of Armenia took place in Yerevan, at the Synopsys Armenia Education Department (SAED), where 41 contestants represented 20 countries - Armenia, Artsakh, Brazil, China, Egypt, Georgia, Germany, Iran, Jordan, Peru, Philippines, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Thailand, UAE, Ukraine, Uruguay, USA, and Vietnam.

The winners of the 12th Annual International Microelectronics Olympiad of Armenia were awarded with prizes at the special awarding ceremony held on October 25, 2017 in Yerevan. The first prize – Gold Medal went to Florin Burcea (Germany), the second prize – Silver Medal went to Akhsham Mahsa (Islamic Republic of Iran), and the third prize – Bronze Medal went to Radinović Kapralović Katarina (Serbia).

“Armenia has years of experience and significant achievement in stating its position in the ICT sphere. Our cooperation with the partner organization in making efforts for the development of the sphere is a practical step in appreciating and further encouraging the potential. We have to make our country more visible in the world. It is important both in terms of aspiring leadership, or competitive advantage, but also in terms of ensuring economic progress. Probably, reaching the destination requires patience and significant investment, but the result will have a long-term effect,” said VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian.

The awarding ceremony at the Komitas Museum-Institute was followed by a charitable concert and reception.
